    cassettes

    Does anyone know a source for GOOD reloadable cassettes? I bought some generic ones recently and the tops have a habit of popping off; not good!

    Thanks Dave. I had forgotten about the Kalt brand. They do make a good one.

    I will second the vote on Kalt cassettes althought their spool is really flimsy.

    I'll third(?) on the KALTs. Never a problem. They snap right on and pop off easily when you want them off.

    Good Evening, Jim,

    I agree that the Kalt's are fine. I've never had a problem with the spools, but it's easy enough, if necessary, to salvage those from factory-loaded Kodak or Ilford cartridges.

    I like the plastic ones with the screw in tops. The Kalts are fine but the screw tops are easier.

    I just went through 10 of the plastic screw tops. I"ve had some fogging with them. YMMV. So try some.
    I saw, on BH, some VERY EXPENSIVE ones. Not sure if I will get them. But next time, I'll get the "snap top" ones.

    Best ones I've used, but not sold anymore, are the Kodak ones (metal)

    Some guy, on the RFF list, said he goes to the lab, they give him a handfull of old ones. They leave a piece sticking out and just tapes film to it, and then rolls it. Brilliant idea!
